Zusammenfassung: The work of Alfred Lorenzer (1922-2002), a German training analyst from Frankfurt, can be called the most important German post-war contribution to psychoanalysis in the 20th century. However, there is neither an introduction nor an English translation of his central works. This essay focuses on Lorenzer's view on the analytic process (scenical comprehension) and on his theory of socialisation (interactionforms, desymbolisation). It is argued, that his meta-theory of psychoanalysis delivers a conceptional framework to overcome the split into different traditions within psychoanalysis. Hidden links to kleinian thoughts are traced, and a translation of an introductory text of Lorenzer himself is added, as well as a bibliography of Lorenzer's publications.
